I have an obsession with cooking chicken thighs this way now! This is similar to my Caprese Chicken, and I have about a zillion more ideas of how to “smother” chicken in this manner… 😉
A seriously easy recipe that only requires you to smother chicken thighs in mushrooms and cheese. Could there be anything better? Well, maybe if you added some bacon, but I will leave that part up to you. with a green salad or some roasted broccoli, this makes the perfect low carb meal. Read more
This dish is so incredibly easy to make and it’s absolutely delicious! Surprisingly, even with the large amount of rosemary in the dish, it isn’t overpowering at all. It balances perfectly with the olive oil and garlic. If you serve this with steamed broccoli, you will have a wonderful diabetes-friendly meal.
1 3 1/2-lb. chicken, cut into 8 pieces
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
10 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 lemon, peel removed, pith and pulp chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Toss chicken with oil, rosemary, lemon juice, garlic, lemon, and salt and pepper in bowl. Marinate for 1 hour.
Heat oven to 475°. Arrange chicken in a 9″ x 13″ baking dish; add remaining marinade. Roast, flipping once, until cooked through, 30–40 minutes.
